“Pick My Solar” Let's the Sunshine in on East Coast Savings

Nation’s #1 online solar shopping platform now offers its services in Massachusetts and New York

Los Angeles, CA - December 21 -Pick My Solar, an online solar purchasing marketplace, has expanded its popular California-based solar service across the country due to market demand. Pick My Solar will now make it possible for East Coast residents in Massachusetts and New York to "go solar" hassle-free through online comparison shopping.


Pick My Solar's service is completely free for homeowners and provides expert consultations all via phone or email. The platform places solar projects out to bid on their QuickBid platform for qualified solar installers to anonymously compete for contracts. The end result is well below-market pricing, to the tune of $5,000 - $10,000, with the assurance of quality installations.

Co-founder and COO Chris Blevins is originally from New York and has been eager for the opportunity to bring his company home. "There's been a continued internal pull to bring Pick My Solar's service to New York, but the timing had not yet been right" said Blevins. "We're now logistically ready to enter the market and coincidently the market's maturity is just as ready for us."

Pick My Solar has quickly gained popularity throughout California and is now focusing on new markets. "California owns 55% of the national residential solar market and has continued to have explosive growth over the last decade; creating an opportunity for Pick My Solar to have Uber style disruption" exclaims Max Aram, Pick My Solar's CEO. "We're looking forward to expanding our platform to service new areas," he adds.

Pick My Solar launched its service to the east coast in a pilot capacity in August, as a partner of Google's Project Sunroof. An influx of demand in surrounding areas quickly caused Pick My Solar to expand its service beyond the pilot program. The company has since assisted thousands of east coast residents with solar pricing data.

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
